better plug it in another USB port if the ticking sound doesn't stop, restart your computer let windows redetect the external HD again.

gangile, here's what you should do:

shutdown the computer, disconnect the external HD, start the computer, in windows attached now the external HD, if there's no ticking sound coming from the external HD then pls checked now if windows detected it. if not, try the external HD to another computer. if the same problem persist, assume defective external HD.
